As I pointed out in Why [I Think] Having A Passport is a Good Idea, I mentioned that some may find the cost of obtaining prohibitive. If I had my way – and the budget – I’d make sure everyone I knew had a passport. In fact, that was one of the original reasons for creating CBT, and it’s definitely still on the agenda. In the meantime, I decided to find and share organizations and individuals with similar missions.
Enter The Passport Party Project. I first found out about this organization sometime in 2015 through a Facebook friend, bookmarked the site and checked in on their Facebook page periodically. Currently on Phase 4 of their program, the mission is to gift a passport a day over a one year period. Although the program is for underrepresented American girls between the ages of 11 and 15, during this phase they appear to be accepting applications from boys.
